BACKGROUND The release of histamine by iodinated contrast media (ICM) is higher in coronary artery disease patients than in noncoronary patients during coronary angiogram. METHODS Eighty-eight patients who underwent a coronary angiography were classified either as having coronary artery disease or as noncoronary patients. Histamine concentration was higher than the 6.8 nM upper limit in 7 cases (group 1), of whom six were coronary artery disease patients. We compared the IgE and complement… CONTINUE READING
